About

“The details of my life are quite in-con-se-quen-tial…” But, should you want to know…

I grew up in small-town Iowa, graduating with honors from Iowa State University. As a graphic designer, I have worked for a private university, a boutique design studio and a craft products retail chain, as well as various nonprofit institutions and several advertising agencies. I currently operate an independent design and communications practice, Modern Alchemy LLC.

In recent years I have become quite politically active, in the causes of progressive reform. I have also provided communication, design, advocacy, organizing and/or research to various candidates & campaigns.

I’m the author of Brilliant Deduction: The Story of Real-Life Great Detectives, Cotton’s Library, and Hancher vs. Hilton.

I live in glamorous Lakewood, Ohio.
